Did you know that the InterContinental Hotel is said to be the only hotel in the country that is stationed on large metal wheels to withstand a major earthquake? It seems to be a legend and it is not true. When it was built between 1968-1971, it was one of the tallest buildings in Bucharest. On the 19th century there is the Imperial apartment where some scenes from the movie Nea Marin The Billionaire were filmed. The furniture is white made of walnut wood and is polished with gold, the lighting objects are made of Murano glass. If you want to spend a perfect Italian evening, you can go to the Modigliani restaurant.
